ON THE FICKIAN DIFFUSION OF ORGANIC PENETRANTS IN GLASSY-POLYMERS

Fickian diffusion of organic penetrants in glassy polymers is formulated as a moving‐boundary problem, and the effect of concentration‐dependent diffusivity on the concentration distribution is investigated. The solutions obtained for concentration‐dependent and constant diffusivity cases are compared. The results show that the concentration distribution curves differ both quantitatively and qualitatively. It is concluded that the sharp advancing boundary between the glassy and rubbery regions is due not only to the discontinuous change in the physical properties of these regions but also to the strong concentration dependency of diffusivity.

A new soluble conducting polymer and its electrochromic devices
YİLDİZ, UMİT HAKAN; SAHİN, ELİF; Akhmedov, IM; Tanyeli, Cihangir; Toppare, Levent Kamil (Wiley, 2006-04-01)
A new polythiophene derivative was synthesized by both chemical and electrochemical oxidative polymerization of 1-(1-phenylethyl)-2,5-di(2-thienyl)-1H-pyrrole (PETPy). Of which the chemical method produces a polymer that is completely soluble in organic solvents. The structures of both the monomer and the soluble polymer were elucidated by nuclear magnetic resonance (H-1 and C-13 NMR) and Fourier transform infrared (FTIR) spectroscopy. The average molecular weight has been determined by gel permeation chrom...
On the possibility of Si-60 structure - An AM1 treatment
Türker, Burhan Lemi (Informa UK Limited, 1999-01-01)
A semiempirical treatment at the level of AMI type calculations has been carried out for Si-60 structure and compared with C-60 It has been found that Si-60 is more endothermic and thus less stable. Moreover, silicon substitutional doping on the periphery of hexagonal rings is more destabilizing than the I:ase involving periphery of the pentagonal rings in the structure of C-60.
Reactive extrusion of poly(ethylene terephthalate)-(ethylene/methyl acrylate/glycidyl methacrylate)-organoclay nanocomposites
Alyamac, Elif; Yılmazer, Ülkü (Wiley, 2007-04-01)
This study was conducted to investigate the effects of component concentrations and addition order of the components on the final properties of ternary nanocomposites composed of poly(ethylene terephthalate), organoclay, and an ethylene-methyl acrylate-glycidyl methacrylate (E-MA-GMA) terpolymer acting as an impact modifier for PET. In this context, first, the optimum amount of the impact modifier was determined by melt compounding binary PET-terpolymer blends in a corotating twin-screw extruder. The amount...
AN EXPERIMENTAL INVESTIGATION OF POLYVINYL-CHLORIDE) EMULSION POLYMERIZATION - EFFECT OF INITIATOR AND EMULSIFIER CONCENTRATIONS ON POLYMERIZATION KINETICS AND PRODUCT PARTICLE-SIZE
Karakaş, Gürkan (Wiley, 1989-01-01)
Effects of concentration changes in initiator species Na2SO3, (NH4)2S2O8 and CuSO4, and emulsifier, ammonium stearate, on poly(vinyl chloride) (PVC) emulsion polymerization kinetics and on product particle size were experimentally investigated. It was observed that to obtain industrially significant rates and overall conversions, not only an optimum concentration ratio of Na2SO3/(NH4)2S2O8/CuSO 4 must be used, but also the concentrations of these species must be above certain limits. Increasing the concentr...
Degradation of Poly(2-hydroxyethyl methacrylate) Obtained by Radiation in Aqueous Solution
Varguen, Elif; Usanmaz, Ali (Informa UK Limited, 2010-01-01)
The degradation of poly(hydroxyethyl methacrylate), PHEMA obtained by -radiation induced polymerization of HEMA in aqueous solution, was studied. The polymer was a gel type and insoluble in common organic solvents. The DSC thermogram of the polymer gave a Tg value at 88.2 degrees C and an endothermic peak showed further polymerization or crosslinking at 110-160 degrees C. The degradation observed in TGA was a depolymerization type. However, the FT-IR of TGA fragments showed no monomer, which was degraded fu...
